I had a little problem making this card! I decided that I wanted to do a double Z fold and when my design was done, the Happy Easter greeting was too long and I did not like how it fit. I decided that I would perform stamp surgery and cut the greeting to make two stamps. This would have been perfect except I dropped the Easter half and my little puppy Dolce got it. I didn’t even realize this until I saw her chewing something and got it out of her mouth. Thankfully she was ok, but my stamp was not! I wish I had taken a picture of it, but I was so upset that I tossed it before I even thought about it!

The Heart & Home DSP has a vintage look that I adore. When I saw the Easter Friends stamp set I knew that I wanted to use it with the Heart & Home paper to make a sweet, vintage card for Easter.

When picking the paper, I wanted to use one of the wood grain prints. To give it some color, I used a blending brush and Sahara Sand ink. This gave the perfect look of distressed wood.


Main Card Base

  • Sahara Sand 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 ¼
  • Floral DSP 1 7/8 x 5 ¼
  • Wood Grain DSP 4 x 5 1/4

Small Z fold

  • Fresh Freesia 3 3/4 x 6 1/4, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 ¼
  • Floral DSP 1 7/8 x 3 ½
  • Basic White 1 7/8 x 3 1/2


  • Sahara Sand 2 x 3


  • Adhere the floral DSP and Wood Grain DSP to the Sahara Sand card base. The floral DSP goes on the left panel and the Wood Grain DSP goes on the right panel, leave the center panel blank. Fold the card mountain on the first score line and valley on the next.
  • Adhere the floral DSP and Basic White cardstock to the Fresh Freesia small Z fold piece. The floral DSP goes on the left panel and the Basic White cardstock goes on the right panel, leave the center panel blank. Fold the card mountain on the first score line and valley on the next.
  • Attach the small Z fold to the card base, centering the small rectangle top and bottom. Rather than centering left to right, I decided to slightly offset the front to show more of the floral DSP on the left front panel. To attach the two panels, I put the pieces together and put liquid glue on the edge of the front flap of the small Z fold and attach that first. Then I use liquid glue applied to back of the small Z fold and attach that.

  • I stamped the bunny in basic gray and used Wink of Stella to blend and soften the lines which also pulls a slight bit of color into the image. It is hard to capture the shimmer in a photo, but it is the perfect touch on this sweet bunny. I used dimensionals to attach it to the small Z fold.

  • The bunny just looks like it should be holding something so I fussy cut a small flower from the floral DSP and added a small bow using white baker’s twine. I added pearls in the upper right corner of the back panel and one to the center of the bow.
